The SMA America Energy Storage System Is Among First Residential Systems Approved by the California Energy Commission

The California Energy Commission (CEC) has accepted the SMA Energy System Home among the first solutions to be listed on the CEC Energy Storage System (ESS) List.

The SMA Energy System Home includes a Sunny Boy 6.0-US battery inverter and a 10-kilowatt-hour battery from BYD, a leading global producer of high voltage battery technology.

The CEC ESS List highlights products that meet national safety and performance standards. Ultimately, the list provides information and data to support existing solar incentive programs and utility grid connection services for various users, including consumers, utilities, and state and local programs.

"The CEC recognition comes at an important time as Californians are acclimating to the new normal of public safety power shutoffs," said Nick Morbach, executive vice president of home and business solutions at SMA. "With the SMA Energy System Home, homeowners have more control of their personal energy management."

The SMA Energy System Home is designed for energy management and backup power with an option for whole home backup, offering timely convenience to Californians given the new normalcy of the Pacific Gas & Electric power shutoffs. With the SMA Energy System Home, homeowners achieve a higher level of energy independence and peace of mind in the event of a power outage, whether unexpected or planned.
